What Azimio La Umoja Coalition Want IEBC to Use In Verifying Presidential Results

Azimio leaders have resumed their vigil at the Bomas of Kenya, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission's (IEBC) national tallying center.

This time, the leaders want the Commission to employ ultraviolet (UV) light to check the results of the presidential constituency exercise (forms 34B).

Gladys Wanga, the newly elected governor of Homa Bay, led the leaders in their demand that UV light is used to check the validity of the documents provided by the Returning Officers.

The Azimio team could be heard saying, "UV light. UV light." However, Commissioner Francis Wanderi had to step in and calm the leaders down.

The spectacle comes after the one on Friday when the leaders of Azimio and the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) camp fought over laptops and the carrying of actual papers into the main auditorium.

Returning officials who are still in line are giving forms 34B to the electoral body Chair Wafula Chebukati. The Commission has until Tuesday to announce the outcome of the presidential election from Tuesday.
